Preventing disease. Prolonging life. Promoting health.
The public health mission is to promote physical and mental health and prevent disease, injury and disability within groups of people—from small communities to entire nations.
Relying on policy, field, and laboratory research and case surveillance strategies, public health professionals seek to identify, understand, and mitigate conditions ranging from infant mortality, birth defects, and chronic diseases to the consequences of lifestyle choices and the effects of catastrophes such as hurricanes, tornados, and terrorist attacks. TKC Global Public Health Services aggressively contributes to many of these efforts and provides organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) subject matter experts in:
- Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities
- Blood Disorders
- Occupational Safety and Health
- Environmental Health
- Ergonomic Engineering
TKC Global expertise includes data collection and statistical analysis, database development for health exposure and outcomes, project coordination and management, programmatic evaluation, risk prevention communications development and emergency response support at both domestic and international levels.
Our staff is often selected as principal investigators for the development, conduct, and review of research projects. Our research coordinators assist on all aspects of study design and implementation. TKC Global’s staff acts as the primary interface between scientific project leadership, project collaborators and laboratories to ensure correct and appropriate sample collection materials are available for teams going into the field. We understand the need to carefully plan each approach, manage the organizational resources, and implement the controls to meet price, performance, and on-time delivery of each of these and many other critical public health services.
Center for Disease Control and Prevention – National Center of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities
CDC’s National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) works to advance the health and well-being of our nation’s most vulnerable populations. It focuses on women, children, and people with a range of disabilities and complex disabling conditions. Bringing together families, leading scientific specialists and organizations to help identify and prevent conditions attributable to material risk factors ultimately leads to healthier babies and children who are able to reach their full adult potential. TKC Global supports the NCBDDD’s mission with a wide array of technical, business, and administrative services, including:
- Analysis of scientific literature, data, and articles submitted for publication
- Expert advice on DNA, family histories, and genomic guidance for NCBDDD projects
- Statistical process control and quality inspection of organizational products
- Clinical review activities related to birth defects of developmental disabilities
- Integration of system science constructs into NCBDDD activities
- Development of educational, health, and outreach programs
- Information technology consultation
- Development and evaluation of training programs
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is the federal agency responsible for conducting research and making recommendations for the prevention of work-related injury and illness. To this end, NIOSH provides research, information, education, and training in fields such as Exposure Science, Engineering and Control Science, Work Organization and Stress Related Disorders, Noise Control, Ergonomics, and Reproductive Health. TKC Global subject matter experts support NIOSH through a wide variety of activities, including:
- Provide laboratory and field-based health surveillance data gathering
- Develop, conduct and review research projects
- Develop public/private sector collaborative research projects
- Translate CDC/NIOSH research results into usable health and safety practice documents
- Evaluate the impact of research projects
- Provide technical assistance in the development, presentation, and analysis of workshops
- Assist in the communication and dissemination of necessary workshop information
